This restaurant is like Ryanair except the base price is very expensive. Everything aditional costs extra. Would you like to have potatoes or rice to the meal, you'll have to pay for it. Sauce? Costs extra. Ketchup? Aditional costs. Salad to the meal? Pay extra!
When it's time to pay the bill you'll be surprised that this was your far most expensive dinner you have eaten in Warsaw.
The food is mediocre. Nothing special at all.
I regret that I didn't check Tripadvisor before we went out for dinner.

Classic scam of being dragged off the street presented with a menu and then blinded with charm by the waiter who suggests special preperation of meals that run the prices up but all seems well until you get the bill. Also they offer mineral water which if you order large is simply tap water pleasantly supplied in an unbranded jug with a plate of lemon slices to distract you from the fact that its not the real deal and then they charge you for 5 bottles of small water 32 pln for tap water!!!
The food was luke warm and not very good salad garnish looked like it had been around for as long as my holiday!!!
AVOID THIS PLACE......100% SCAM

Cheaters Cheaters Cheaters,

This restaurant in old Town Square is well arranged to get you surprised bills. A polite English speaking waitress will come and give you menu, Menu say some dish like 60 -70 Zlotys, then she'll ask you for sides and she'll say its Polish style and comes with this and this, all these sides will cost upto 200 Zlotys more, like 40 Zlotys for a piece of Broccoli.

Secondly, to drink she will recommend local wine, this gonna cost you 350 zlotys, compared to 70 for all imported ones,
Or if you ask for local beer, she'll say with lemon and then she'll say I'll make a good one for you. You get big mug and the bill will have, 5-6 more item for that drink for which you will pay, 80 Zlotys for the beer that looked like 10 zlotys in menu.

I went there with two of my Australian frinds, we just wanted to have roast duck costing 59 zlotys each and then were pursued for a surprise bill of 1350 zlotys for 3 people (like 450 Euros) meal with sides and a drink, on Discussion they said They have to call Police and when Police came, then manager exchanged smiles, smirk and a handshake with them, and same moment we knew we lost it.
Policeman said "Be careful, You are in Poland" Wow. Did they have a share , ofcourse NOT :)

Its a well played game, the only option you have is to be very very careful if you still want to go here.
